a new plan. new plan. that's going to work better and save medicare. that plan, though, a harvard study comes out and says, that new plan still a voucher, would cost somebody 55 years old right now by the time they get on it $60,000 a year more over the life of medicare. ladies and gentlemen, the reason i bother to tell you this is, the reason i bother to tell you this is, the fact of the matter is it goes to motive. it goes to motive. can you imagine? can those of you who know me? can you imagine me voting for a proposal adding $6,400 a year to the cost of medicare or 60,000 over the life of it? ladies and gentlemen, the neighborhood i come from -- i mean this sincerely -- the neighborhood i come from, that would mean the people getting medicare would not be able to get medicare. they would not get nearly the benefits they have now. i don't know anybody in the neighborhood i come from that has an extra $6400 a year for health care when they're seniors. and i don't know. >> all right, everyone. listening to joe biden with the talking points there. he first went after representative paul

the issue of medicare is factoring into the presidential race in three key states. i think these polls do more than anything to prove how this has been a substance free campaign on both sides. it's been a campaign according to mika brzenzski that has been a sign campaign. medicare is considered extremely important for 50% of those polled and that makes a lot of sense. voters in those three states were also asked the question, what the medicare system would look like in the future. roughly 6 in 10 said the program should maintain the current system of benefits and that number peaked at 65%. one of the most stunning numbers to me, and it is unbelievably depressing, in this age of, you know, where simpson and bowles are running around the country trying to tell americans desperately what needs to be done to save this country from falling off a cliff financially, over 70% of voters in florida said, seniors in florida said that you don't have to cut medicare to take care of the debt. why do you even say that? >> please, cut my benefits. no one is going to say that, joe. you know that. >> how a
to to help him. >> what is interesting on the polling of medicare and seniors who is obama's weakest demographic basically until the last month or two? it was seniors. seniors were very suspicious of obama. the foreignness the youth they saw him as liberal. and we've seen a dramatic turn around in call the key states. if you peel it back a little more, you find that is overwhelmingly related to the medicare question. the numbers on the medicare question particularly among seniors has shifted dramatically in obama's direction in just a month after ryan was initially picked. you'll recall they went very hard on medicare. they decided to run to their weakness, and they started to basically just lying or at least being incredibly dishonest saying that obama is going to do this and had cut 700 billion in change when, in fact ryan had cut the same amount in his budget proposal. you saw a little tightening when ryan was picked for the ticket, but the numbers have gone overwhelmingly in the other direction. seniors are now very much supporting obama in these swing states, and if you look at
standardized medicare supplement plans, it helps cover some of what medicare doesn't pay. to find out more, call today. -oh, that's just my buds. -bacon. -my taste buds. -[ taste buds ] donuts. how about we try this new kind of fiber one cereal? you think you're going to slip some fiber by us? okay. ♪ fiber one is gonna make you smile. ♪ [ male announcer ] introducing new fiber one nutty clusters and almonds. is efficiently absorbed in small continuous amounts. citracal slow release continuously releases calcium plus d with efficient absorption in one daily dose. citracal slow release. >>> protests are raging today in iran. tehran residents flooded one of city's largest bazaars shouting and setting garbage fans on fire. people are furious about how far the iran wran currency has fallen in trading, particularly against the u.s. dollar. now, iran's president gave a speech yesterday saying his government not to blame for the money crisis. he says it's the west. it's the united states, the sanctions that amount to warfare against iran. i want to bring in holly. confwrat las vegas on your e

hearing democrats only unfortunately republicans would not participate on medicare and how medicare is affected by the ryan/romney budget to sever the medicare guarantee. they didn't want to participate in that. they don't want to -- we're supposed to be in session this week, but they've canceled it rather than passing a middle income tax cut, passing a jobs bill, passing the violence against women act, passing the farm bill, any of those things. but yet they have time to say we want information when they know it's premature. >> so you're saying this is political from their position? >> one might suspect that. >> that's what i hear you saying. >> one might suspect that. >> let's talk about other political stuff going on. a new romney campaign ad. i'm going to play a clip because you're prominently featured in this ad. watch this. >> who will raise taxes on the middle class? barack obama and the liberals already have. to pay for government-run health care, you'll pay higher taxes and more for your medicine. and their plan includes $1 trillion in higher classes even on the middle clas
